We had an amazing time with out guide King, walking around Soweto. Usizo was easily able to accommodate our last minute booking only a couple days in advance and they were incredibly helpful in describing the benefits of the different options they could provide. We picked the walking tour and did not regret it. There is truly no better way... More

We had the tour with King who is magnificent. His knowledge was incredible and he is so kind and welcoming. This is the best tour of Soweto you can do. It's very safe where he takes you and he tells you the whole history. Just call Ntombi she will organise it for you and King is one of the guides.... More

We took a walking tour with our guide Lindela. He was great, very knowledgable and totally flexible when we changed the plan a little. He came to meet us at our guesthouse in Melville. Travelling on the public minibus network with him was an experience in itself. There is no way we could have worked it out on our own.... More

This was the best tour of a place I've taken for all time. King is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. I was able to see all of soweto including some experiences I'd dreamed of taking (such as the local bus) that I wouldn't have known how to do myself.

I undertook this walking tour with my father. Our tour Guide King was excellent - a very welcoming and kind person! He made us feel relaxed and at home with his presence during the tour. His historical knowledge of Soweto and its areas was exceptional, and delivered with incedible passion, making it enthralling and fascinating to listen to. We would... More

I had originally booked an 8-hour walking tour then when I sent my confirmation details, Ntombi replied that they were fully booked unless I wanted to join the 4-hour walking tour (which I decided to do). When I arrived at the pick up point there wasn't anyone there, and no answer when I call the contact number provided. Shortly after... More

I really recommend to get best ever experience of Soweto with Ntombi. She is so nice, telling stories about Soweto from beginning to end of Apartheid regime. Being from the township, she gets you to inside, visiting people she know is really unforgettable experience. See you soon Ntombi with my family this time.
